* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' the Justice Knight (He's a [[LargeHam KNIGHT]] [[HeroAntagonist OF JUSTICE]]!) fights and imprisons shushu. To be fair, shushu ''are'' highly destructive demons.

* Locksmith in the MarvelUniverse who used to imprison super-humans, feeling their feats overshadowed the achievements of ordinary humans. Most of his victims were {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s who ComicBook/SpiderWoman (Jessica Drew) had fought during the run of her own comic, but eventually he managed to capture Tigra and Spider-Woman herself. While the design of his prison to prevent his captives from using their powers to escape was considerable, the heroine managed to outsmart him. (First she had Tigra insult Poltergeist to start a fight, which shorted out the power that maintained the cells. Then she convinced Gypsy Moth, to use her powers of cloth to switch their costumes. The Locksmith was fooled, and put Spider-Woman and Gypsy Moth in the wrong cells after the power was restored, and the one designed for Gypsy Moth couldn't hold Spider-Woman. Once everyone was free, the Locksmith stood no chance.
* The Hangman, another MarvelUniverse vigilante, would murder male evildoers but imprison female ones to 'protect them from corruption'. Unfortunately, he had a nasty habit of forgetting about them, leaving them without food or water...

* Faora Hu-Ul was a Phantom Zone villain introduced in ''[[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Action Comics]]'' #471. She was a beautiful Kryptonian woman whose unexplained hatred for men led her to torture and kill 23 men at a secret concentration camp in her home.



* The Master Jailer from ''{{Superman}}'' comics (Deathtrap in ComicBook/PostCrisis continuity) is a sort of example, except he's an out and out villain who just likes the power trips provided by his powers. And of course he's an unusual example because he actually has powers to facilitate his fascination with incarceration. Also of note is the fact that he was the architect who designed the supermax prison in Metropolis, Stryker's Island.

* The ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' FreedomCity villain Warden is one of these. He worked on making prisons as [[CardboardPrison non-cardboardy]] as possible, and got a bit fed up with people making that task harder by telling him that the prisoners have rights; didn't they forfeit those when they ended up in prison? His current goal is to overthrow "soft and corrupt" law and replace it with something altogether more draconian.

* Played with in ''ReBoot'' when Megabyte imprisons Hexadecimal when he's not exploiting her power. When the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin firewall]] goes up imprisoning Megabyte, Hexadecimal remarks "now it is the jailer who has been jailed."
* Kampe, the jailer of Tartarus in ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Cronus was the only prisoner to have ever escaped under her watch. She hopes to correct this, even if it means sacrificing others to do so.

* Lock-Up from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' (and CanonImmigrant to the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics). In the animated series, Lyle Bolton was once the new Head of Security at Arkham Asylum, but whose methods were so harsh and extreme that everyone at the asylum was afraid of him, particularly Scarecrow. After being relieved of his post, he would go on to "arrest" those who he deemed to be at the root of Gotham's problems, including the mayor, Commissioner Gordon, reporter Summer Gleeson and the chief doctor of Arkham ([[SarcasmMode coincidentally]] the very same people who exposed his abuse of power and had him fired, making this a case of revenge) before being stopped by Batman and Robin.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Marvel 2099}}'' universe, [[Comicbook/ThePunisher2099 the Punisher]] (2099 version) had his own private prison. Of course, in his {{Cyberpunk}} {{Dystopia}} CrapsackWorld, anyone who could shell out the fine could get away with ''any'' crime, including murder. This made him - relatively speaking - as much an extremist in his world as the original Punisher (who just shoots everybody) was in his. Possibly more so; his prison came with a torture chamber. By the way, he reserved his prison for offenders whose crimes he felt didn't quite deserve the lethal approach - this was actually his idea of mercy! He also had his own version of the electric chair in case he ever changed his mind.
